Chicago Fire to (once again) call Soldier Field home

Recommended Posts

Why the hell can't they use a college field? 

There's no reason for the Bears to risk a star's health due to a rut in the grass from their games. Losing Mack or EJax to that would be maddening.

Or the stadium that the city, you know, built for them like 12 years ago?

Bears should switch to a hybrid turf/grass field like the Packers have up at Lambeau.

This is the best of both worlds IMO and would prevent the field from getting trashed easily.

I honestly had no clue about that. Lol.

The turf up there is pretty neat, tight trimmed grass but with the little plastic fibers sticking up just below the top of the natural grass

Pretty sure Soldier field has tried a similar hybrid approach, but here it's a hybridization of landfill and clearance expired grass seed from Home Depot.

Will a Chicago Fire player or Kyle Long be on the ground more at Soldier Field?

Long should be retired by next year I hope.

Adam Shaheen is a contender.

But the question is will he be playing for the Bears or Fire.

 

I jest...at least in 2020 anyway.
